Girls Take Charge!

The Hun School

July 27th - July 31st, 2020

Girls currently in 4th, 5th and 6th grades

Welcome to Girls Take Charge at the Hun School

 

We are looking forward to returning to the greater Princeton area this summer and having a great experience at the Hun School.  The Hun School of Princeton is a co-educational, private day and boarding school in Princeton, New Jersey.  

 

Remember, each year we change about 75% curriculum so our returners can enjoy new activities as well as see how they have grown in some of the program's favorite activities.  Each week is the same program.  Content does not vary each week.  

GTC Program Overview

 

What is Girls Take Charge?

Girls Take Charge is a life and leadership program for middle school and high school girls. The program is highly interactive and provides an opportunity for girls to fully express their thoughts and experiences!

The Girls Take Charge curriculum has been carefully designed after years of research, surveys, and facilitation to ensure it maximizes all opportunities to teach girls key life and leadership skills that matter in real life. All girls will benefit from the specially designed set of workshops provided by GTC.

What will the week be like?

The award-winning curriculum has been carefully designed by the team members of Learning to Lead a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.

 

The curriculum is specialized based on the girls' school level so they learn age-appropriate skills while being surrounded by girls of a similar age. Most importantly, the program is designed to be fun and interactive!

Review the PROGRAM tab for exciting insights about the week and for an example of a daily schedule. 

What are some of the skills that you focus on during the week?

It is important for any future leader to first understand and realize who they are. We do several activities focused on developing strong and positive characteristics, skills, and interests. Some of the lessons used include:

  • Self-Awareness

  • Leadership 101

  • Self Esteem/Body Image

  • Strategies to Not Focus on Mean Girls

  • Growing Positive Relationships

  • Service Leadership

  • Effective Communication

  • Decision Making

  • Problem Solving

  • Teamwork

Who Attends Girls Take Charge?

GTC is open to all girls who are currently 4th - 6th graders and will be rising 5th - 7th graders by the summer of 2020.  Most of these girls are excited about their futures and look forward to spending time with fellow value-based girls, but we also have activities that help girls who are more shy to learn about themselves, to participate, and to be leaders as well.  

Who are the staff members for the program?

Highly experienced educators serve as facilitators and program leaders for the week. In addition, local area women leaders serve as guest speakers and session leaders. College-aged women serve as junior facilitators so girls can learn from young women who have recently walked where they are walking. All GTC team members have all levels of child safety clearances. The GTC team has a passion for helping girls realize their full potential and can't wait to interact with your daughter.
